This is my first pastel painting on the new surface called Evolon, which is almost more an archival polyester and cotton fabric, than a paper. With it I could work in pastels wet- in-wet, which was a thrill.
The tenor pitch of the euphonium has a beautifully pleasing, melodious sound. This painting is part of my “sound” series, and sources from me playing baritone in the marching band, enjoying the rich tones that stream out from deep within the bell of the horn.
